How To Choose The Best Hair Mask For Your Hair Type

It’s called self-care for your hair.

Just like your precious skin, sometimes your tresses need a little pick-me-up. Yep, we’re talking about the holy grail of hair care: the hair mask. Between environmental elements and general life haps, your usually gorg hair can become dry, tangled and dull and even experience breakage. Eeek! Take a deep breath. We got you.

We often hear about the benefits of a face mask routine, so let’s talk about the benefits of a proper hair mask routine instead. We are hair people, after all.

Hair masking is similar to face masking in that we’re 100% here for the mixing and masking. You can choose the best hair mask based on your mood, what your hair’s up to that day or even just because the mask smells amazing. Testing out new products is half the fun, right? There’s a bit more of a science when it comes to how to use hair masks, though.

Allow us to explain.

NEED TO REPAIR DAMAGED HAIR?

A rinse-out hair mask is an ideal hair mask for damaged hair because you can use it multiple times a week. We’re a little biased, but we love the power of a coconut oil hair mask, which is why we turn to OGX Coconut Miracle Oil Hair Mask when our mane is looking less than lush. It’s ideal for all hair types, and you only need to keep it in for 3-5 minutes after washing your hair. Depending on the level of your hair’s damage, you may even want to swap regular conditioner for a nourishing hair mask instead. Just remember to use a small amount if you apply it daily.

LOOKING FOR A DRY HAIR REMEDY?

The best hair mask for dry hair should help to hydrate and repair. OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Strength Hair Mask is formulated with silk protein for smoothness and argan oil of Morocco to help lock in moisture.

Apply a dollop amount into your palm and evenly distribute through freshly washed hair from mid-shaft to ends. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes while you shave or get soapy and then rinse it out. Have a little extra time? Show some shower cap realness and cover hair for up to 10 minutes. Rinse off with a burst of cool water to help increase shine for #HairEnvy.

Feeling extra? Face mask while you’re hair masking while you’re soaking in a bubble bath.
